The official Ford lowering springs (at least here in Denmark) are 30mm Eibach. I'm getting my 2013 Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost 5 door Titanium lowered tomorrow - not at Ford though but at a different mechanic that took care of my old car.


Same in the UK, I think they are around £200 without fitting

Just a quick snapshot of my Fiesta lowered with Eibach springs   :)  Don't mind the rims - it's 14" with winter tires

Can't wait to get mine on either!

Been sitting in the cupboard for a month. Everytime I'm off work, the mechanic is booked solid :(

Should be in the next week :)

Oh and the good book says they lower *between* 30-35mm. Obviously less on ZS models as they sit 15mm lower anyway.

Afaik there isn't a 40mm Eibach option...

Looking forward to the piccies Sarah ;)

Changing springs really is not too difficult - If you are even half-skilled with a set of spanners, you can do it at home...  Just make sure you get a set of spring compressors (use two - one each side of the spring - never just one because that's when accidents happen - A compressed spring is a dangerous thing!).  Do one at a time, should take less than 30 mins a corner even for someone who has never done it before.   B)

 

Of course, if you are not mechanically inclined, there is nothing wrong with getting a mechanic to do it for you either!  :)
